Blasted Things by Lesley Glaister #bookreview @SandstonePress @GlaisterLesley

The period just after the First World War is a time that fascinates me. Not only was everyone trying to settle back into a normal way of life, there was also the Spanish Flu pandemic to deal with. It must have seemed like the difficult times would never come to an end. Blasted Things focuses … More Blasted Things by Lesley Glaister #bookreview @SandstonePress @GlaisterLesley

Summer Island by Natalie Normann #bookreview @NatalieNormann1 @0neMoreChapter_ @lovebookstours @lovebooksgroup

Mabel (or Mabs) is … More The Rose Garden by Tracy Rees #bookreview @AuthorTracyRees @panmacmillan @RandomTTours #TheRoseGarden
